Barney moved close (6)
I believe the answer is:
'close' is the definition.
(similar in meaning)
'barney moved' is the wordplay.
'moved' indicates an anagram.
'barney' anagrammed gives 'NEARBY'.
(Other definitions for nearby that I've seen before include "In the vicinity" , "Around the corner" , "[OPPOSITE OF] miles away" , "Local" , "somewhere close" .)
